At Truett-Hurst Winery, the only thing that might be better than the wines is the scenery. Situated in a beautiful, serene spot along Dry Creek, this biodynamic vineyard is known for its Zinfandel, but other varieties, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Rosé, are produced as well. Sip the latest releases in the striking tasting room (made from green materials like walnut slabs and palm woods) and spend a little time outside: the lush property maintains five acres of farmland and gardens that contain heirloom fruits, vegetables, and olive trees. Expect animal sightings including goats, sheep, ducks, and otters.
Bring a picnic, buy a bottle, and relax by the creek in one of the quaint red adirondack chairs.
